Embed frames into a confluence page

Hello, community. I want to mebed two frames on a confluence page. The first frame contains an HTML form. The user inputs some data in it. After he clicks the "submit" button, he gets a result in the second frame which resides on the right. So, I want to achieve something like that:

<title>My Page</title>
<frameset cols="70%,30%">
  <frame src="input.html" name="input">
  <frame name="result">
      <p><b>Frames have to be enabled!</b></p>

I used the HTML-Macro first. But apparently it cannot work with paths on the server. When I supplied the source path of my first frame - <frame src="/one/two/three/input.html"> it could not display the content. OK, then I used the HTML-Include Macro and included the code above as URL. But now it says that no frames are enabled. So, what could I do?

Does this "application already exist somewhere butyou just want to display in your wiki as well, or is this something new? If it already exists then you could use an iframe to show it in the wiki. The html macro could be used for this, or if you have the content formatting macros (free) it comes with an iframe macro. You would simple use an iframe to show the existing site on the wiki page. If this is something new and you are set on using frames then again I would build this outside of Confluence and show it inside the wiki using an iframe (inline-frame).

OK, actually, it does not exist yet. I wanted to implement it in a confluence page :-) What do you mean by using content formatting macros?

I provided the link in my above anser. It is a add on in the atlassian marketplace. Onve of the macros included is an iframe macro.

OK, so is it the only way? Is there no possibility to implement it on a confluence page directly? I ask because I wanted to use the name of currently logged in user in page contents and also did not want to make a separate webpage, accessible outside of confluence.

Yes, I found it, installed it and it seems to be working.
